Markets and Off Road Camping


As we were leaving Kununurra on Saturday I noticed lots coloured gazebos at the oval. The local markets, so just had to go.

Yes a stall with quilts and some fabrics.
 Finally I was able to buy a few fat quarters.

We drove till about 4pm and then found a beautiful spot in the bush to set up camp.

It was so peaceful and sunny in the morning to just sit and stitch before packing up.

We fuelled up like so many other travellers.

occasional bathroom stop

morning tea and some lunch. As we drove along there was a huge bush fire going on for many kms.

For our second night of camping DH had to do a bit of bush bashing.

I am always amazed where DH takes our dear old van. This branch was stuck underneath.
It was a perfect spot next some beautiful Boab Trees

Lovely sunset.

As it is such perfect weather in this part of Aussie we decided to spend a few days in Broome before making our way home to the cold and rain.
Will post again tomorrow for One Flower Wednesday and show you what we are doing in Sunny Broome.

  2. It looks like such a fun adventure, Maria. I'll bet it is lovely to have no plans, but to be able to stop when you feel like it. Enjoy the warm, sunny weather while you have it.

    Is that fire a good thing or bad?
